Technologies

The Technologies curriculum consists of Design and Technologies and Digital Technologies.

Design and Technologies aims to develop the knowledge, understandings and skills to ensure that, individually and collaboratively, students:

  • produce designed solutions suitable for a range of Technologies contexts by selecting and manipulating a range of materials, systems, components, tools and equipment creatively, competently and safely; and managing processes
  • understand the roles and responsibilities of people in design and technologies occupations and how they contribute to society.

Digital Technologies aims to develop the knowledge, understandings and skills to ensure that, individually and collaboratively, students:

  • use computational thinking and the key concepts of abstraction; data collection, representation and interpretation; specification, algorithms and implementation to create digital solutions
  • confidently use digital systems to efficiently and effectively transform data into information and to creatively communicate ideas in a range of settings
  • apply systems thinking to monitor, analyse, predict and shape the interactions within and between information systems and understand the impact of these systems on individuals, societies, economies and environments.

Students have access to desktop computers, laptops and iPads.
